Since deciding that I wanted to start my own online business, I have realized that I am going to really need some help and training from people that are already where I want to be. Because of that, I have decided to start looking for a mentor or hey, even two.
I have been reading a few magazines on business and success here lately and the majority of them tell me that I need to have a mentor.
Wouldn’t I sort of be foolish not to do so? Especially when I’m getting into such a large business?
So on top of continuing to read good books and ones that are recommended to me through those, I am now scouting out the web to find a mentor. Why online you might ask? Won’t I end up scammed or sold wrong information?
Maybe. But successful people have to learn to take risks. And if I don’t start now then I don’t see myself being very good at it later.
So for now my mission is clear: Mind a good mentor(s) to teach me what they know so I can fast track my success. If I want to take years to get my business off the ground then I can’t wait around much longer.
Seeing results from people that are already where I want to be and having them show me the steps to get there seem MUCH better than having to figure things out myself.
I believe having a mentor will do me a lot of good and it just feels right. I cannot wait to get started! But I better take it down a notch since I don’t know how long it might take. Oh well, I guess it’s like what the old saying goes: “When the student is ready, the teacher will appear.”
Sounds doable enough for me.
Now on to the hunt for a mentor.
